NFL Insider Ian Rapoport says several Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys players have tested positive for COVID-19.
On Twitter Monday, Rapoport said Ezekiel Elliott’s agent Rocky Arceneaux said Elliott is one of the players who tested positive and that the Pro Bowl running back was “feeling good.”
On Twitter Monday afternoon, Elliott said his agent didn't break the story but did confirm the diagnosis when asked about it by reporters.
Rapoport said he initially learned about the infections from a source and that none of the players are believed to have been at team facilities.
Rapoport didn't say how many people on each team have contracted the virus, but sources told The Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken that two Cowboys players are believed to have tested positive for COVID-19.
The Dallas Cowboys told NBC 5 they could not confirm the report.
"Due to federal and local privacy laws, we are unable to provide information regarding the personal health of any of our employees," the team said.
